Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured black with frothy mocha colored head that left some dense and chunky lace. 4

S- Lots of dark fruits and some light smokiness and roasty notes. 3.5

T- Lots of dark fruits notes of raisin and slightly tart cherry juice, pretty big roasty character but definitely much more on the sweeter side for a porter. 3.5

M- Prickly carbonation, pretty smooth, not a dry finish. 3.5

O- It skews a little sweeter than I prefer for the style, but the dark fruit notes are pleasant and uniquely prominent for the style. It is missing a lot of the chocolate and coffee notes I really enjoy in most porters though. 3.5

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Big coffee on the nose. Easy head with some lacing, but not much. Taste is stronger than the texture would indicate. A little smokiness & a bit of bitter add up to an interesting beverage. It hints at complexity but never quite gets there. Sort of like a painting in primary colors. It can be quite appealing, but with a more deft touch the challenges on both sides of the appreciation equation are amped.

Don't get me wrong, I"m enjoying this, but there are 40 taps in front of me & in that environment my thirst may be quenched, but my curiosity lingers.
